4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. No date on the bottle. The pour is a reddish amber with a short-lived small head. An array of aromas including dark roasted and sweet malts, figs, dates, raisins, and other dark fruits. No alcohol. The body is medium to full. The taste has a lot of the same sweet and fruit dark malts with a warming sensation on the back end.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle. Poured into a snifter. Pours a muddled mahogany with a one finger off white head that recedes to a ring. Lots of raisin, date and fig on the aroma with weak Belgian yeast and a sweet smelling candied sugar. Taste is sweet featuring all the above along with some vanilla. If there are any hops here they are the earthy variety. Medium bodied. Pretty good, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark ruddy brown with thin tan head. Aroma has malty notes in the background of an overwhelming metallic smell. Fortunately this isn’t much present in the flavor, with a nice mix of ripe fruits, bready malt, and candi sugars taking over. Slightly sweet, but that’s okay with me. Finish is pretty smooth, inviting more. Not bad, but the smell is disturbing.

Draft at Big Jims in Largo, fl. Aroma and taste bit too sweet. Heavy caramel or molasses flavors. Trying too hard to make a strong ale

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a murky brown color with a small beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was malty, a bit woody and had a sour fruit note. The flavor was cherries, fig, malty, toffee and a touch boozy with a woody and medicinal undertone. Long finish. Medium body and a bit flat. Disappointing.

Growler from Magic Hat. Pours a copper brown with a tan head. Nose is earth, cinnamon, spice, toast, overripe banana, and a slight metallic twinge. Flavor is earth, spice, banana, and some overripe banana with metal in the finish behind a yeast that’s trying to dry this out. Medium in body and strange overall.

Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Opaque dark brown with small frothy beige head, very faint roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, sweetish roasted malt taste with alcohol undertones, abrupt finish leaving alcohol aftertaste. The alcohol taste is too prominent
